Brittany is for explorers; it is a journey itself.
Take a break from the busy city life by exploring one of Europe's wild, dramatic coastlines and beautiful medieval towns. It's got thick forests to walk through and ancient traditions to get to know.
Brittany is worth the detour for those who want to go off the beaten path.
The dramatic coastline, medieval towns, and thick forests make getting lost well worth it. This unique land has a culture of tradition, mysticism, and culinary wealth.
Breizh ( as the locals fiercely call their land) is a lesser-known region in Western France. Still, it has a wonderfully undiscovered feel once you get away from the world-famous attractions of St-Malo, Dinard, and Dinan.
Brittany is a land of surprises, and its riches make it ripe for exploration. You might be surprised at what you find. Roscoff, Quimper, and Vannes are underrated towns full of charm, like Carnac, Finistère's weathered coastlines, and the Presqu'Île de Crozon.
Some of these islands are beloved by travelers due to their size and seclusion, like Île d'Ouessant. Others are popular for their natural beauty and rich history, like Belle Île. On every island, you can explore the legends of korrigans (local fairies or spirits).
Its 2,700 kilometers of coastline dotted with sandy beaches, quaint villages, and ancient cities is a perfect reason to visit. But that's not all Brittany has to offer - it also has medieval castles and stunning countryside. Make sure you explore every corner of this enchanted land of legends.
